Divested Asien's Appliance business, significantly enhancing balance sheet

Mr. Ellery W. Roberts, CEO of 1847 Holdings, commented, "I am pleased to report we achieved a 15.0% year-over-year increase in revenue and a 13.3% year-over-year increase in gross profit. Additionally, revenues from the automotive supply segment increased by 41.1% to $1.8 million. This growth can be attributed to strategic initiatives begun in Q4 2023, coupled with a new credit facility established in late January 2024, further empowering the acceleration of this business segment's expansion. This achievement reaffirms the substantial value that 1847 delivers to our subsidiaries, both financially and operationally. During the quarter, we successfully divested of our Asien's Appliance, significantly enhancing our balance sheet. This resulted in a $1.1 million gain for Q1 2024. By strategically divesting of Asien's, we anticipate a reduction in 1847 Holdings' expenses by approximately $10.9 million annually, which should positively impact margins across our primary business lines. The divestiture of Asien's enables us to streamline operations, optimize resource allocation, and position 1847 Holdings for sustained growth and profitability. This underscores our commitment to delivering shareholder value, as we continue to pursue opportunities for growth and enhanced profitability, in alignment with our long-term strategic goals."

Mr. Ellery continued, "We're maintaining a strong acquisition pipeline, focusing on companies offering value and positive cash flow, while minimizing dilution for shareholders. Recently, we announced a non-binding LOI to acquire a prominent millwork, cabinetry, and door manufacturer headquartered in Las Vegas, NV. This target boasts revenues of $28.6 million, with a purchase price of $16.75 million which represents approximately 3.2x 2023 EBITDA. This acquisition presents an attractive opportunity for 1847, with favorable negotiated terms and the potential to complete the transaction without equity-based funding at this time."

"Additionally, we executed a non-binding LOI to sell all of the assets of 1847 Cabinets Inc. Under the terms of the LOI, the buyer has proposed an enterprise value of $27.6 million for the acquisition of all of the assets of 1847 Cabinets, including $11.5 million in earn-out payments over a three-year period, representing a 5.91x multiple of 2023 EBITDA of approximately $4.7 million. We are advancing this transaction and anticipate closing within 90 days. Proceeds from the sale will be utilized to repay senior secured debt and other liabilities, allocate funds for working capital and future acquisitions, and potentially initiate a share repurchase program. This strategic move validates our ability to purchase, operate, and enhance asset value, thereby strengthening our financial position and enabling strategic resource reallocation to capitalize on emerging opportunities within our portfolio and beyond," concluded Mr. Roberts.

About 1847 Holdings LLC
1847 Holdings LLC (NYSE:EFSH), a publicly traded diversified acquisition holding company, was founded by Ellery W. Roberts, a former partner of Parallel Investment Partners, Saunders Karp & Megrue, and Principal of Lazard Freres Strategic Realty Investors. 1847 Holdings' investment thesis is that capital market inefficiencies have left the founders and/or stakeholders of many small business enterprises or lower-middle market businesses with limited exit options despite the intrinsic value of their business. Given this dynamic, 1847 Holdings can consistently acquire businesses it views as "solid" for reasonable multiples of cash flow and then deploy resources to strengthen the infrastructure and systems of those businesses in order to improve operations. These improvements may lead to a sale or IPO of an operating subsidiary at higher valuations than the purchase price and/or alternatively, an operating subsidiary may be held in perpetuity and contribute to 1847 Holdings' ability to pay regular and special dividends to shareholders.
